Eight people, including four children, were killed and 79 injured when a monster truck careened into a crowd at a show in northern Mexico, an official at the public prosecutor's office in the city of Chihuahua said on Sunday. The incident late on Saturday afternoon took place at the El Rejon dam on the outskirts of the city, about 230 miles (370 km) south of Mexico's border with the United States.

Monster truck accident

Mexican government officials and event organizers on Monday blamed the

driver of a monster truck for losing control and plowing into a crowd of

spectators, killing eight and injuring 79.

Motor-sports experts,

however, pointed at the organizers, saying the setup of the

state-sponsored show was blatantly deficient and life-threatening. (Associated Press)
